Richard Mpong's solitary strike helps Elmina Sharks sink struggling Aduana Stars

Exciting attacker, Richard Mpong scored with a fine effort on Thursday evening to hand his Elmina Sharks outfit a narrow 1-0 win against Aduana Stars at the Paa Kwasi Nduom Stadium.

Prior to today’s fixture, the Dormaa-based club had failed to win any of their two games in the ongoing 2020/2021 Ghana Premier League season.

Even without star man Yahaya Mohammed, the defending champions hoped to beat the home team to merit the first 3 points of the campaign.

Unfortunately for the side, a well-oiled Elmina Sharks team has put up a resilient performance to deservedly take bag the maximum points.

In the first half, the club in the Central Region was pegged back by the opponent but remained resolute and defended very well to ensure they did not concede.

Having gradually settled into the game, Elmina Sharks displayed some good passing play and managed to take the lead in the 23rd minute when Richard Mpong found the back of the net.

With Aduana Stars failing to get on the scoresheet throughout the remainder of the game, Sharks have picked up their second win of the Ghana Premier League season.
